the city is a coloring book


find a stranger


someone with empty

in their eyes


hand them a dozen daisies and

say they remind you of these



even if you think they’re ugly

as shit

and the world does

too

because

they’ll feel beautiful

like those flowers

for a moment


then go downtown

with a pocket full

of googly eyes


put them on every statue

promoting justice

and peace

and art


offer them to the cop who calls

it vandalism


make him see the color

make him feel it there too


now you both are sticking them

on everything

that resembles a face


at the courthouse

the homeless park

even on the naked women

stuck staring at walls

in the art

museum


do these things

and somehow

in some microscopic way

the world will be a better place

because of it


then do it again tomorrow

with a different color
